Buying a house with land is a rather complicated process for a legally illiterate person. The key moment of the transaction is correctly executed documents, which guarantee the honesty of intentions of each of the parties.
What to pay special attention to
Real estate transactions such as buying a house with a land plot have their pitfalls. In order to successfully complete the transaction, it is better to contact an experienced lawyer who can deal with the registration of the site.
One of the most common mistakes is the neglect of two important rules: checking the title to land and the title to the property itself. It must be ensured that these two rights are certified and registered.
Sometimes it happens that the seller does not have ownership of the land, but he has the right to a lifetime inheritable gift, or the owner has registered only the land, but does not have the right to buildings. In these cases, in the future you may encounter problems that can be resolved only in court.
If you decide to purchase a house by proxy, be sure to check all the documents with a notary, as cases of fraud in this direction have become more frequent. It is imperative to find the person who drew up this power of attorney and clarify that the property is for sale.
List of required documents
When buying a house and a land plot, documents of title to real estate are mandatory. Such documents include a certificate of state registration of ownership of a house or an act of the selection committee on the acceptance of a completed object into operation (if the house was built directly by the seller). However, there are other life circumstances, after which a person enters into ownership. That is why the list of documents can be expanded. The list may be supplemented by the following documents:
- contract of purchase and sale, donation or exchange;
- certificate of entry into the right of inheritance, to which a certificate of state registration is attached;
- technical passport of home ownership, which records the total area of the house and the area of each of the premises, as well as their boundaries;
- documents confirming the ownership of the land plot.
It is imperative to check that the land on which the house is built is the actual property of the seller, and not just correctly registered. It must be in the right of ownership. In addition, it is worth remembering that the land must be privatized. Compliance with these points guarantees you no unnecessary problems when buying a house.
